In the last couple of years, it apparently doesn’t take even a modicum of brain power to be the White House press secretary. After over a year of the Wendy’s lady, we’ve transitioned to the first “black, gay, immigrant woman” who routinely carries around what seems like an empty binder.
Current White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took it upon herself to actually say something that wasn’t written down for her on Wednesday when she called the Supreme Court’s completely legal move to overturn Roe v. Wade “extreme” and “unconstitutional.”
“But look, there has been an urgency from this President from day one when — when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right,” Jean-Pierre said, as reported in White House transcripts. “It was an unconstitu- — unconstitutional action by them — a right that was around for almost 50 years, a right that women had to make a decision on their bodies and how they want to start their families.”
Except, as usual, Jean-Pierre — much like most in President Joe Biden’s regime — didn’t know what she was talking about.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website noted two takes on Roe not being a Constitutional right — one by “Yale Law School professor John Hart Ely,” and the other by “Edward Lazarus, former law clerk to Roe’s author, Justice Harry Blackmun”:
Yale Law School professor John Hart Ely spoke for many when he stated: Roe v. Wade "is bad because it is bad constitutional law, or rather because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be”[…]
Lazarus: What, exactly, is the problem with Roe? The problem, I believe, is that it has little connection to the Constitutional right it purportedly interpreted. A constitutional right to privacy broad enough to include abortion has no meaningful foundation in constitutional text, history, or precedent.
Also, the Supreme Court upheld the Constitution by returning the abortion decision back to the states so each state's constituents can vote as to whether or not to allow abortion and what limits to those allowances should be in place.
When is anyone in the Biden regime going to understand that not only can we see them, but we can hear them speak as well? I guess incompetence does breed ignorance.
